And in this case it would have been usefull to show the complete part of thh session. Just saying “it didn’t copy” is without even showing what (error) messages were displayed is not very informative. It does not prove e.g. that /home/anonymous/asdf.asd exists. Let the computer speak!
mgi@boven:~> scp beneden:hoera hoera
scp: hoera: No such file or directory
Maybe you have a different SSH config then I have. As you have seen, mine asks simply Password, while your asks* 111.222.333.444’s password*
My questions, are you loging in as usr sj at the other system? And do you use sj’s password then?
And I repeat: please put computer output between CODE tags. There is no need to put code: before it because that is of no help. Read the link I provided in the first liine of poist #3 above.

No idea what that means but can you add the option -v to your command to get
hopefully the more verbose debug messages from scp like this
scp -v -P 22 111.222.333.444:/home/bjm/waterphantom/test.root ./
or the short form
scp -vP 22 111.222.333.444:/home/bjm/waterphantom/test.root ./
of course with a valid ip address
